  • A Blue Point of View

    RACHACE on 01 Oct at 15:21

    Manchester City v Newcastle United, Saturday 3rd October (15:00 ko) Firstly, welcome to my blog, my preview on Premier League matches involving my club Manchester City. Our 8th game see's us host the struggling and winless Newcastle United at the Etihad Stadium. The Magpies have had a very tough start to the season which has seen early season optimism dampen somewhat. No win in any of their opening 7 fixtures, losing 4 and drawing 3. However, they did play well for the majority of their last game against Premier League champions Chelsea but after having led the game 2-0, they unfortunately failed to hold on and the game ended 2-2. Still, before the game they'd have taken the point so they can still take the positives from what was a much improved performance to the ones they'd put…

  • Chelsea vs Southampton - Can Saints Catch Chelsea Cold?

    Chelsea vs Southampton - Can Saints Catch Chelsea Cold? Saints’ season finally seems to be up and running with their convincing win over Swansea meaning the club’s form now looks very respectable, with only an unlucky and narrow defeat to Man Utd, who currently lead the league, as a blemish on their recent form. With Saints coming into this game in decent form and Chelsea on the back of several defeats at the start of the season, this looks like the best chance for Saints to face up to this most difficult of fixtures. vs Chelsea - The Team The last match saw the timely return of Ryan Bertrand at left full back, and he seems likely to keep his place against his old side, and his overall return to action is something that should help Southampton greatly. He and the addition of…

    Alfred Dunhill Links Championship The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, is one of the richest golf tournaments on the European Tour. It is played in October, on three different links courses, centred on the "home of golf", St Andrews in Fife, Scotland. The tournament is a pro-am, with the format based on the long-running United States PGA Tour's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am held annually since 1937 (except during World War II), where each team consists of one amateur and one professional. The three course rotation consists of The Old Course at St Andrews, Carnoustie Golf Links and Kingsbarns Golf Links. The 54-hole cut is made of the top 60 professionals and the leading 20 pro-am teams, regardless of the professional member of the team making the individual cut. These players and teams advance to the final round at St Andrews. The Courses & Stats…

    A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF PBF. PBF works on a simple percentage basis, with ratings becoming much more tightly bunched as the sample analysis size gets bigger. It is common over small samples to derive huge figures as you will see, but the bigger figures are only indicative over the bigger samples. A general rule I tend to use is, the trends themselves act as a pointer to explore unusually large figures over a bigger sample size and if they can be franked, should be able to point us towards horses that outperform the market. The figures can hopefully give a broader understanding of trends them simply “8/10 top weights have won this race in the past” and give an indicator as to whether it is simply a small random sample or has its roots deeply in a specific trend. I am going to…

  • Saturday Racing Preview - 3 October 2015 - Final Update

    Robmull on 30 Sep at 14:40

    Saturday is usually the busiest day of the week in terms of race meetings, attendance at race meetings swelled by occasional racegoers enjoying a good day out and betting turnover, as once a week punters try to find the winners of the races that they are able to watch on terrestrial TV. In general, the races that are covered by Channel 4 on Saturday are often the most valuable and competitive events of the week and as such are the most complex to analyse. In addition, many Saturday punters that I know struggle to find sufficient time to fully analyse all of the data that is available in the media, prior to making their selections, as they find they are under time restraints due to competing home and/or work commitments. Speaking from personal experience, I have lost count of the…

    nellberg1 on 29 Sep at 15:42

    England travel to Asia to play Pakistan in 3 tests, but the games will be hosted outside of Pakistan due to security risks. They begin their tour with 2 two-day games against Pakistan "A" in Sharjah before taking in 3 tests in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah. Itinerary: Tour match - Pakistan "A" v England XI, Sharjah, October 5-6 Tour match - Pakistan "A" v England XI, Sharjah, October 8-9 1st test - Pakistan v England, Abu Dhabi, October 13-17 2nd test - Pakistan v England, Dubai, October 22-26 3rd test - Pakistan v England, Sharjah, November 1-5 A tour to play Pakistan in sub-continent conditions is always a tough task for England. England have historically struggled in these conditions and Pakistan have a team that is built to play on slow, turning tracks. I remember after the euphoria of our Ashes win in 2005 we toured…

  • NFL: International Series Trends

    undertherobe on 01 Oct at 22:33

    This weekend sees the International Series take centre stage once more in the NFL as Wembley hosts a regular season game for the 9th straight season. Last year was another milestone for the NFL in London as they hosted three games for the first time and the first early morning kick off in the States. It was so successful that all three matches in 2015 will kick off at 9.30am Eastern time and always looking to improve year on year, the NFL have managed to get their first Divisional matchup with an All AFC East clash between the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets, whilst later in the year, they will host games on back to back weeks for the first time which will be a real test for the attendance which has topped 83,000 on nine of eleven occasions. So with eight…
